Ducati has tweaked the Multi’s ergonomics with a seat that’s narrower and decrease than earlier than, with repositioned foot pegs. Suspension, braking and electronics are areas that haven’t been touched, that means you continue to get an upside-down fork and monoshock set-up, each of that are absolutely adjustable (manually on the usual bike and electronically on the ‘S’ variant). The stopping set-up continues to comprise 320mm discs bitten by Brembo monoblocs up entrance, and a single 265mm disc on the rear.

The electronics suite consists of cornering ABS, traction management, selectable journey modes and a hill-hold perform. Extra goodies on the S are a full-LED headlight, 5.0-inch TFT sprint, backlit switches, cruise management and a bi-directional quickshifter.
